frequent wireless connection drops
« on: January 20, 2008, 08:45:34 AM »

Hi,

I've just bought my dir-655 wireless router yesterday and until know my wireless connection to the router always drop every minute or less. What's even worst is that sometimes it just won't allow me to connect to its wireless. I've upgraded my firmware from the US dlink website. I am now using 1.11 firmware with A3 hardware.

Here's the log that I saw from the router's log page:

Wireless system with MAC address 000E35351C59 disconnected for reason: Received Deauthentication.

What does "Received Deauthentication" mean?

Thanks ~

First thing I would do is get the date and time correct. Then troubleshoot from there.

I seem to have the same problem, but only when running multiple high useage aps.  I have 1.11 FW and A2 HW.  When I run P2P (Azureus) with a couple downloads, limited to 30 connection each, with a global max of 50, and when I run a PTPP VPN connection, the VPN drops out intermittently. 

I have used the QOS to prioritize (around priority 80) GRE port and the other VPN port, but still no dice.  Every 2 to 20 mins there is a VPN drop-out and reconnect.  I have since turned it off and found no improvement either way.

I can tell you, this is much better performance than my DI-624, which basically became unusable in the same application.  Everything else about the DIR-655 seems a fantastic improvement.  Keep up the good work, but any insight on the VPN drop-outs would be great!

Not if it disconnects your wireless connection every minute  :)

I am not using any torrent yet. I just let my pc idle for an hour, then I check the logs of the dlink router, and the disconnection never fails. Sometimes it happens even less than a minute. I read some forums in cnet raising this issue regarding wireless problem of dir-655 and there seems to be no solution yet on how to fix it.

I'm using Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG chip, does this mean that my wireless chip isn't compatible with the dir-655? What's even funnier...which sometimes really annoy me...I have a D-link Airplus G DWL-G120 USB device and when I use this, it can't even see the dir-655. I'm just wondering whether this router is really stable?

Any suggestions on how to fix my problem? I appreciate the help!

Regards,

I had no drops at all with my 655 when I first got it and my N and G traffic going to different routers. Then I started to use both G and N devices to the 655.  The N devices constantly droped, re-connected, and changed speeds.  Solution: Went back to multiple access points for different access methods.  No more drops and steady 300 Mbps.

I don't seem to have any problems with wireless drops, but only connecting at 130Mbps - I need to work through the 300Mbps changes with my laptop to see if I can get 300...  130 seems to work just great...  My problem, wired or wireless, are the VPN connection drops while using P2P with limited connections (50 max)...  Hope someone has some insight!

Hi Dakata,

May I know what adapter or chipset are you using in your wireless? Does this mean that I have to send back my router for repair or check up?

Thanks

I am using Asus laptop with Intel 4965AGN wireless adapter.  I get connected wirelessly at 130Mbps, which I thought was great, until I read the N standard is supposed to be 300Mbps!  : )  Anyhow, with my disconnects, I get them either way - connected on the 10BaseT or wirelessly.  So I assume it is the router, not the adapter in the laptop.

Let me be a little clearer as well, I NEVER have 'connection drops' to the router on the laptop on wireless or wired.  I only loose my VPN connection when I am running P2P through the internet.  I never seem to have trouble with the connection to the router, just the VPN kicks out once and a while (every 2-10 minutes if P2P is working away). 

The connection to the router for surfing the internet kind of apps is rock solid.  In fact touring my house with the laptop, I don't think I have ever lost signal!  Amazing improvement over the DI-624 Ver. C!!!

If you are only getting drops when mixing a VPN and P2P then the answer is going to be QoS, if you already had QoS rules in the past then there maybe some tweaking we can do.

Is the DIR-655 detecting your upload speed correctly?
Please enter all the QoS rules you have already entered into a post with the above question answered and I'll see if we can't get some proper rules in a public place to model things off of.

As a side note I would be careful using VPN and P2P at the same time.  Most VPNs become your default gateway when you dial in, meaning you are now running your P2P over the web to your VPN network, and then again out from there.  In fact it is entirely possible there is something in the VPN network that is shutting you down.

Ensure that your VPN interface dosen't take over all traffic by visiting whatismyip.com before and after dialing, if the IP changes then all your traffic is being re-directed over the VPN (and if that's into a corporate network this probably isn't wise).

I am having the same problem.  No VPN or P2P software only Skype, Steam, & Firefox running.  Fresh install of XP Pro SP2.  I am trying to connect to the DIR-655 with the  DWA-522 PCI card.  I have two wireless networks at my house, and the other I can connect to without any problems.  Just upgraded to FW  1.11.  Funny thing though, I have another PC w/ the same wireless NIC, and it connects fine to my DIR-655...

Here is some of the log dump:

i got it too after upgrading to 1.11, only twice however (the second time was enough so i acted).
i read on various forums about such issues. first thing you should do is check if you have the let windows disable the device to conserve energy option enabled in the device manager, if you do disable it. for my dwa 142 it was in advanced>power save mode - set to CAM, others might have a power management tab

then i configured the WPA Mode in the router to WPA2 only (was set to both wpa & wpa2), and the Group Key Update Interval  to 1000 secs.
hasn't disconnected yet.

Well, I think I solved the problem.  Since my OS is fresh and the driver install is fresh, I assumed that the problem was the DIR-655 firmware update, but it ended up being the drivers on the DWA - 522.  When I initially installed them, I used the setup file.  When I went into Device Manager, the hardware name seemed pretty generic.. something like "D-Link Xtreme N".  So, for the heck of it, I manually installed the driver by pointing the drivers I downloaded off of dlink.com.  After manually installing the driver, the hardware shows up as "D-Link DWA-522 XtremeN Desktop Adapter".  Then I switched wireless networks and now it works! 

I will report back if my connection stops again... hopefully, I wont have too.

Did you uninstall the old driver first? Was the D-Link utility still installed?

I just updated the driver.  Everything else was still installed.
